  • Drugs have certain classes. I cant really remember what they all mean but say sedatives and pain killers are in class a, antibiotics and anti depressants are class b, most over the counter are c

  • Pnukey is more info on the classes and why they have them, They are supposed to indicate the relative abuse potential of the drugs, but in fact they tend to be social statements rather than scientific classifications.
